We really haven't heard anything about BioShock Vita in a while, but recently, Irrational's Ken Levine revealed that the project was still being considered by the suits over at Sony and Take-Two Interactive.
Though the BioShock Infinite creative director has an interest in creating a BioShock game for the Vita, he really doesn't have much say at the moment. Rather, the "business people" are currently hashing things out.
"Where the Vita stands right now, it's in the hands of the business people at Take-Two and the business people at Sony working out, hey, what happens in these business people discussions? Fortunately I don't have to take part in it any more because I sold my company a long time ago.
“It's something I'm still very interested in. I still have a cool design for it. It's a question of, do those guys come to find the right mix that makes everybody happy to make that happen?”
Levine also notes that he never stated the Vita title would be a port of the upcoming multiplatform Infinite. No details were mentioned, but he was definitely careful to avoid suggesting anything other than the port being a separate game.
“I've never said it was Infinite. It will be something. I'm always hesitant to talk too much about things we don't have anything to show about because it's getting ahead of ourselves. I'm trying to be very careful."
BioShock Infinite has since been delayed a month, giving the developers time to polish the game a bit. The release date has been pushed out of February to March 26.
